Are you the genre of woman who likes to use the heating and cooling system every afternoon of the year? There are a lot of people who do care about that.
They simply set the temperature control on their preferred setting and leave it there all year long.
In the summer, the a/c keeps the temperature control setting right, and in the winter, the heating system kicks in to keep the house at that setting. I am not that genre of lady. Because I live in the south, the a/c is on for much of the year out of necessity, so I look forward to the fall each year. When the cooler weather comes in, I get excited because I can shut off the a/c, open the windows, and let the house get fresh. I try not to turn on the heating system immediately; in fact, if I can get through the whole Winter time separate from using heating, that is what I try to do. I don’t like forced air heating, as the dry air gives myself and others sinus trouble and wreaks havoc with my skin and gives myself and others chapped lips. I have a little portable heating system that I periodically plug in just to have a little spot that is warmer, although I think in the long run those portable gas gas furnaces aren’t all that efficient. If I can get away with it, and the Winter time is mild, I choose to do the best thing – curl up under a blanket, take hot showers thanks to the water heater, and wear some sweats! When Summer comes back around, though, I gotta turn the a/c back on!
